When you do std costing you should be using the cost lot size in the part/plant. This size should be whatever size lot that you will do to make a profit. Ex: if you need 1/2 hrs to setup you might need to do 100 units to make it worth while.

When we were testing Standard Cost (my CFO wanted to change from current Average to Std), I discovered that the rollup will use the currently approved method to cost the part (even if that part is a purchased part but has a BOM, which we have many of as we will occasionally build parts we usually buy).
You can create a new revision for the part that has whatever you want to change in it, and then just before you do your Standard Cost Rollup change the "approved" revision back to the one without the changes.
I had this all in (I think 3) DMT uploads that took a few hours to run... thankfully we abandoned the Standard Cost project before it went too far.

However, we don't want that 0.5 hour of setup time factored into the cost of our inventory. For example, when doing a cost rollup for our parts it wants to assume that the cost of making 1 unit of that part includes 1/2 hour of burden and labor now which would increase the cost of my inventory value for that part by 1000%. Any ideas?
